Customer Review

on 1 August 2009
WARNING! This dictionary is only of any use if you can read hiragana/katakana. It contains no romanji (Western script). So if you hear a Japanese word like 'hana' (flower) you cannot simply go to the 'H' section and look it up-you have to be able to read and understand the Japanese script. The addition of romanji would have made this publication accessible to even the rawest beginner, and this fact is not made explicit by the publishers. In its present form, I'd suggest this publication is designed for intermediate learners who are conversant with hiragana, and not for those just learning Japanese conversation.
